Literacy Loot: Shoes, Totes and Tequila!

literacy loot meme

In an effort to find some interesting items for this week’s post, I challenged myself to find things from places other than Etsy, which is my go to site for all things cool and unique. Honestly, this was a really tough task and I struggled a bit. I hope you like what I came up with!

 Literacy Loot to Wear:

shoes of note

These “Shoes of Note” Flats from ModCloth ($64.99) are too crazy not to share. I loved reading all the reviews, from mostly English teachers, about how excited buyers were to wear these to school. Cute!

This “Down the Rabbit Hole” Necklace from Out of Print ($32) is perfect for Wonderland fans of all ages.

 Literacy Loot for the School:

Jo Tote

Calling all Little Women fans! This “Bookshelf Bandit Tote” in “Jo” by Out of Print and listed on ModCloth ($19.99) has an adorable pattern that I love. All of the “Bandit Totes” are worth checking out.

The “Greatest First Lines of Literature Ever Mug” from Bas Bleu ($12.95) would be a great addition to any classroom, whether it holds pens and pencils or some much needed morning caffeine!

Literacy Loot Items for the Home:

This Tim Federle book would be the perfect adult book club read. Funny and entertaining, this title is listed on Amazon ($11.46).  The sequel, Hickory Daiquiri Dock, a cocktail book for new parents, comes out in December.

literacy loot meme

Hello, Literacy Lovers! I don’t know about you, but I love finding fun and unique bookish items to ooh and ahh over, and every once in awhile, buy for school or home. I am not afraid to admit that I’m also a sucker for a fun bookish t-shirt to represent my love of reading and writing. I’ve missed these posts, so I thought I would start them up again. Enjoy! 🙂

This week’s post features a little bit of everything. I’ve been pinning away and favoriting on Etsy, so here’s this week’s literacy loot smorgasbord!

ABC bookend

Another cool bookend – this time from graphicspaceswood on Etsy. This wooden alphabet piece is $55 and the wall hanging alphabet linked n the description would make a great companion piece in a nursery.

I’m loving this $25.00 t-shirt from Skreened. I’m sure there are many husbands out there that would agree that being married to a teacher is one wild ride!

This $18 Penguin Books phone cover from gleeksheeksleek is pretty hilarious. This site has a lot of stuff for geeks worth checking out, like cool Harry Potter signs, a Wicked phone cover and more.

ALikelyStory is an Etsy store that caters to all literacy lovers! This bracelet, which uses replicas of old fashion typewriter keys is listed at $27.95, and would be a great gift for bibliophiles. The Bookish Charm Bracelet is worth checking out too!

My favorite item of the week…

This week’s post features a few of my favorite Harry Potter items out there that won’t break the bank, and a very interesting candle, too. Enjoy!

harry potter mugs

This $20 Harry Potter themed mug set from KynasKreations on Etsy is great for fans of the boy who lived. Anyone up for a HP reread and some coffee in a stylish mug?

harry potter abc tote

I am obsessed with this ABC tote bag featuring so many favorites from this beloved series. Even he-who-shall-not-be-named looks almost cute! Found on Luvocracy for $18.99, this bag is a must for literacy lovers.

hp coasters

This handmade coaster set from OhGaud on Etsy is $20 and is also available in all text. This shop also has some cool looking comic book coasters that are worth checking out.

My favorite item of the week…

candle

This candle is advertised as scented to “evoke the atmosphere of your fantasy library and the pleasure of reading”. Sounds good to me! Listed for $49 from Assouline, this candle is definitely the luxury item of the week and an interesting concept for sure.

Happy reading and shopping!

Hello, literacy lovers! September is almost here, but I’ve still found some back to school treasures that are perfect for the classroom!

book planter

This succulent planter from TakeMeHomeAndAway is classy, understated and boasts a beautiful Chinese Proverb – “A Book is like a garden carried in the pocket”. A beautiful gift for teachers and librarians, this planter is only $22 and the wrapping it comes in is gorgeous. I love the little book stamp on the back, too!

johngreenprint

Attention all John Green fans! This upcycled vintage dictionary page with an Augustus Waters quote from The Fault in Our Stars is pretty awesome. Talk about a cool piece for a high school classroom. I have really been into all of the print-on-dictionary-pages art I have seen recently, and think this handmade item from ForgottenPages is a steal at $8.00.

readeveryday

Another cool reading banner for the classroom – this time from inspirationalbanners and it is pretty adorable for $26.00. This shop also does custom orders, so you could make a special banner just for your readers!

librarianstee

I LOVE literacy t-shirts and this is no exception. Teachers DO love librarians, and this $19.99 tee is pretty much perfect for casual Friday or anytime, really. Check out lovespace on Esty for more details and tons of other t-shirt options.

My favorite item of the week…

CJT_WorkHardMug

I adore this $16 coffee mug that lists two very simple rules to live by. C Jayne Teach may be my new favorite online store for teacher gifts. Lots of cute notecards, pencils, notebooks, stamps and mugs.  All lovely!

I’ve had so much fun finding and sharing teacher treasures that I’m sure one or two will end up in future Literacy Loot posts. Be on the look out next week for a book scented candle, cool Harry Potter paraphernalia, and other great literacy loot for book lovers of all ages!

As always, please let me know if you see literacy loot out there that you think is deserving of being featured on the blog. Until then, happy reading and shopping!

I like the idea of having professional business cards to hand out at conferences and other events. I would definitely add my twitter handle too.

Luxury Item of the week:

This shelf tree wall decal sticker from Smiley Walls would look great in a classroom, child’s room or nursery.  You can add 4 shelves to the decal and have a sharp looking bookshelf.

Hello, literacy lovers! August is flying by, and  I’m featuring even more treasure for all you savvy teachers with classrooms to fill with cool literacy loot. This week’s items are sure to make your classroom even more functional and fun!

library stamp

Last week’s featured personalized library stamp was very popular (check it out here: Back to School Teacher Treasures Week 1 ), so I have decided to feature one each week during the month of August. Listed at $24.95, this simple, self inking stamp is the perfect addition to any teacher’s classroom library. You can even choose your ink color – black, blue, red, green, or brown. 
The Stampin’ Place
 features multiple library stamp options.

writebanner

readbanner

Can we just take a moment and look at these adorable classroom banners?! Wouldn’t they look great above a center or in a cozy reading or writing corner? Love them! They are listed at $17 and $15, and Gifts By Gaby has several more banners, like a personalized pencil teacher door sign, that you will probably want to check out.

grasshopper

This stapler from Anthropologie is one cool office supply. Your fellow teachers are sure to have desk envy when they see this little guy, and you definitely won’t have trouble getting a volunteer to staple packets either.  For $18, this stapler can be prominently displayed on your desk or even in a writing center.

This week’s luxury item…

modclothplateset

I can always count on Modcloth for having something quirky and fun for the home. They featured their Gourmet Grammarian Dish Set for $49.99 on Facebook yesterday, and this cool and functional conversation starting dinnerware is sure to impress your dinner guests.

Next week there will be even more Teacher Treasures featured, but in the meantime, if you’d like to see some older Literacy Loot posts from this summer, please check out these links:
